MARY MAGDALENE: Visiting the Fourth Dimension in Dreams

Received by Mercedes Kirkel
On March 12, 2014

 

Question: I have lucid dreams that leave me physically exhausted the following day. Some I can recall in great detail, others I can’t remember at all. What happens to our bodies after these powerful dream states and what information, if any, are we receiving?

 

Mary Magdalene: In the third dimension, dreams are one of the ways in which you are able to experience the fourth dimension and interact with your reality in a fourth-dimensional way. What most of you are familiar with and recognize as the dream state is a fourth-dimensional realm. During much of your sleep time, you are resting in this realm and getting refreshed.

 

In the fourth dimension, beings enjoy constant rejuvenation. So they do not experience aging, degeneration, and disease the way that you do in the third dimension. Part of resting in the fourth dimension during the sleep state is to revitalize and rejuvenate your physical body. Because you are still based in the third dimension—where aging, degeneration, and disease are part of your reality—it is not possible to entirely reverse or eliminate the effects of these processes. They are part of what you, and all beings in the third dimension, have come to the third dimension to experience. Nonetheless, the time you spend in the fourth dimension during sleep has an effect of counteracting these processes, to a certain extent.

 

During your dream time, you are more consciously and actively involved in the fourth dimension. You experience some of the other qualities of the fourth dimension, especially the ability to manifest instantly. During your dreams, you are able to manifest virtually anything simply by thinking about it. Your thought calls it into manifestation.

 

Another quality of the fourth dimension is that it is very emotionally based. This is reflected in your dreams, as well. Most dreams have a strong emotional component or characteristic. If your dreams are nightmares, you tend to experience the emotion of fear very strongly. Some dreams are very enjoyable and pleasurable, such as sexual dreams or flying dreams. In these, the emotion you experience may be bliss, or ecstasy, or joy. Other dreams may be characterized by emotions such as curiosity, or stimulation (such as mental stimulation), or intrigue. All these are emotions that are common in the fourth dimension, which is also referred to as the astral plane.

 

Sometimes your dreams are a way of working out issues from your third-dimensional life or resolving karmas that you are carrying in your present incarnation. If you work through these things in your dreams, they are resolved just as powerfully and effectively as if you were to work through them in your waking consciousness. It is easier to do this kind of purifying work in the dream state than in your waking state. In general, it happens much more quickly and with much less effort. Nonetheless, you may wake up from these kinds of dreams feeling tired, as though you have just done a great deal of work. And indeed you have.

 

Some cultures have emphasized remembering, recording, and sharing dreams as way of fully receiving the benefits and gifts they provide. While this can be a valuable practice, it is not required for you to reap the benefits of the dreams or the work you do within the dreams. Those benefits occur whether you remember the dreams or not. However, remembering, recording, and sharing dreams may support you in integrating your third-dimensional world with the fourth dimension, and in that way may support you in your process of ascending into the fourth dimension. Remembering, recording, and sharing your dreams may help you to understand things in your current world differently—to take some things more easefully or with more lightness, and perhaps to value other things that you might not have tended to be aware of or considered significant. All this can be helpful.

 

If you are feeling exhausted from your dreams, I suggest you explore the option of recording and sharing them with others. Beyond that, I recommend taking care of yourself in all the ways I have recommended that people care for themselves in general in the midst of the ascension process. Get extra rest, as you need it. Eat well. Exercise. Spend time in nature. Meditate and pray regularly. Nurture yourself in life-supportive ways. And support yourself with relationships with others whose frequency of light and love supports you in maintaining the highest frequency you can.

 

With much love,

I AM Mary Magdalene

MARY MAGDALENE: The Feminine And Masculine Forms Of Meditation

Chakra Goddess image courtesy of www.karunaarts.com

Given to Mercedes Kirkel
On February 25, 2014

 Question: I recently read that while in deep meditation you should place your attention on the Ka body (energy body) to build energy, and that if your mind wanders to fantasy you reduce the energy to the Ka. Many teachers/mentors suggest something quite different, saying you should use your meditation to visualize your desires or intentions. They say that during meditation the brain is in an alpha/theta state and you can release dross from the subconscious mind and replace it or reprogram it with compassion or a visualized intention. Can you clarify this for me?

 

Mary Magdalene: Greetings my beloved. I have heard your call, and I am here with you and happy to answer the question that has been asked. This is a valuable question, as it points to confusion that others may have.

 

There are many different meditation practices and many different ways to meditate. Fundamentally, the purpose of meditation is to move you into a higher state of consciousness and to experience and rest in, at least for a temporary period of time, the higher frequencies of manifestation, which you might call a higher dimension and which correspond to the higher state of consciousness you have reached.

 

There are two fundamental forms of meditation. One is a consciousness form and one is an energy form. These two forms can overlap. The consciousness form relates more to the Divine Masculine approach, drawing on the qualities and strengths of the Divine Masculine, which in its purest form manifests or is experienced as pure consciousness. This is rather difficult to describe and express accurately because of the limitations in your language, which don’t allow clear and direct expression of these concepts. Your language difficulty stems from the fact that, in the third dimension, there generally isn’t clear understanding and experience of these concepts and states. So they are generally expressed as best as possible, given these limitations.

 

The energy form of meditation is based in the Divine Feminine approach, because energy is a characteristic and quality of the Divine Feminine.  This is all explained in great detail in the book, Mary Magdalene Beckons. It would be best to reference what is already contained in that book to understand the qualities, attributes, and differences between the Divine Feminine and Masculine in greater depth.

 

Fundamentally there are these two broad types of meditation, and there are many ways to access and deepen in both. There are also forms of meditation that draw on both the Masculine and the Feminine, to a greater or lesser extent.

 

The traditional spiritual forms of meditation that were developed in the East, especially in the traditions of Hinduism and Buddhism, tend to be primarily oriented to developing and growing in consciousness. In these practices, you are primarily working with your mind, quieting the lower mind and allowing the higher mind to be accessed. You have concentration practices, such as counting your breaths, becoming aware of your bodily experiences, becoming the witness or observer of all experience, asking questions into the nature of existence, and repeating mantras. All theses are techniques for bringing discipline to the lower mind so that it can relax and subside, thus allowing the higher mind to be accessed.

 

When the higher mind is accessed, you start to function from a higher consciousness and higher dimension. For most people, this will initially be the fourth dimension. Once the higher mind opens, there are various things that may happen. You may continue to focus on the pure state of consciousness and go more deeply into that state. This may feel like letting go of everything—all aspects of your body-mind—and resting in a state that is deeply refreshing. There may or may not be energy experiences that accompany this, such as a blissful feelings, visions, sounds, appearances of higher beings, etc. It is the choice of the practitioner how they want to proceed when the higher mind opens. They have the choice to continue into a greater connection with pure consciousness or to choose to go into the energy experiences. Neither is right or wrong, better or worse, higher or lower. But they will tend to have different results.

 

I suggest that you be clear what your intention is in choosing to meditate. If your intention is to clear the mind and refresh yourself deeply in the well of pure consciousness, then choose a meditation that supports that, and follow that form. In those meditations, when the higher mind opens, you will continue to connect as deeply as possible with pure consciousness. Then the instruction would be to not get involved in other phenomena that arise, such as energy experiences, creative thoughts, or various other experiences.

 

However, you may have a different intention in your meditation. If your intention is to solve problems, manifest a certain experience, or connect with higher beings, etc., you may choose to allow and follow these when they arise.

 

If I may use you as an example, Mercedes, you spent many years practicing a consciousness-based meditation and became very strong at that. At a certain point, quite a few years ago, you went through a profound awakening in consciousness. In your case, that consciousness practice was supported by other practices of disciplining your physical body, emotions, and energy, which are Feminine aspects of your being. Bringing discipline to them supported you in coming into balance and peace, freeing you to become more aware of consciousness and to go more deeply into the state of pure consciousness.

 

If the physical body, emotions, and energetic self do not have that kind of balance and peace, they will tend to distract you. Then it’s more difficult to become aware of the higher states of consciousness and to follow those into a deeper union with them. This is why spiritual life is generally engaged with accompanying lifestyle changes and practices, such as having a pure diet, or making choices about the company you keep or the kinds of stimulation you bring to your mind, body, and energetic self. These things all support you becoming more free to focus on and become attuned to pure consciousness.

 

I have been speaking about meditation up till now in its more Masculine form of uniting with pure consciounsess, bringing the practitioner into a greater sense of liberation, peace, and a certain kind of deep ecstasy of union with God, in a very pure form. I would also like to clarify the more Feminine form of meditation, which has to do with focusing on energy. Ultimately, the Feminine is all about energy. As you know from your scientist, Einstein, and many others as well, energy always has a counterpart in matter, form, or manifestation. This counterpart can be at a much subtler than the physical. You may experience energy as sound, light, or sensations that don’t seem to have a physical base. Creativity is another form of Feminine manifestation, as are the manifestation of subtle beings, such as angels or beings in higher dimensions. All of these forms of energy may become a focus for the Feminine form of mendation.

 

An example of a more Feminine-based meditation would be to focus your attention on manifesting a certain outcome or on finding a creative solution to a situation or problem. Shamanic journeying is a Feminine form of meditation, because it is based upon experiences in subtler realms of manifestation. It is often guided by a drum or ingestion of a substance that moves you into a different state of energy, as well as a different dimension of existence. Sacred sexuality practice is a Feminine form of energy meditation, because it follows the energy of sexuality to move you into higher states of manifestation. Certain forms of breathwork, such as holotropic breathing, can be practiced as Feminine forms of meditation, as they make use of the energy of the breath to move the practitioner into an altered, or higher, state.

 

As I said earlier, it is not that one way or the other is right or wrong, better or worse, superior or inferior. They have different purposes and outcomes. So it is to your benefit to become aware of the outcome you desire and to choose a meditation practice that supports that. It is also wise to be aware that different meditation practices appeal to different aspects of your being. Whether you are naturally strong in that aspect of your being will influence whether that form of meditation is accessible or easy for you. Many people have tried the more Masculine forms of meditation and concluded that they’re not capable of meditating, because they weren’t able to quiet their body, energy, or lower mind to the point that their higher mind opened up. Often, that is a sign that these people are not naturally strong in the more Masculine aspect of their being. If they were to engage a more Feminine form of meditation, such as shamanic journeying, sacred sexuality, or a manifestation process, they may have a very different experience, with much greater ease and success.

 

Truly, you are all both Feminine and Masculine. Ultimately it is to your benefit to develop both Feminine and Masculine approaches to meditation. That is the most direct route to growing into the higher dimensions. If I may use you as an example again, Mercedes, you now practice a form of meditation that is very balanced. It is both a consciousness practice and an energy practice. It allows you to rest in greater and greater connection with pure consciousness. At the same time, you use a portion of your meditation time for manifestation and for connection with higher beings. This has proven to be very effective and powerful for you in regularly accessing the fourth-dimensional state, with it’s attendant higher consciousness and higher abilities in the energy realm.

 

Most people in your culture at this time are not so easily able to relax the Feminine parts of their being and move into the pure Masculine. This is interesting, as you tend to live in a Masculine–dominated culture. Yet the Feminine and Masculine are always in balance, so in any given circumstance, if one is predominating in a certain way, the other will always show up in another arena as a form of balance. For most of you, it is at the subconscious level that you are mightily attached to the Feminine, even as your conscious life tends to be dominated by the Masculine. The strength of your subconscious attachment to the Feminine, in the form of your physical body, emotions, energy, and sexuality, as well as your tendency to be engaged in creative thinking (without the ability to set it aside through intention), tends to make it easier for most people to access meditation in a more Feminine form in your present day and age.

 

However, as I said before, the Masculine and Feminine are always in unity and ultimately cannot be separated, even though one  or the other may seem to be the primary experience you are having at a given time in the third dimension. This is part of the third-dimensional consciousness and experience of separation. In the third dimension, the Masculine and Feminine seem to exist in separation. This is an illusion, but you will not fully realize it as such until you move beyond the third dimension.

 

Because of the inherent unity of the Masculine and Feminine, any meditation that you engage will ultimately involve both aspects of your being. While a consciousness-based meditation will lead you into a purer form of the Masculine gift of pure consciousness, it will also lead you to higher states of manifestation and abilities in those states, either during the meditation itself or afterwards in your more “ordinary” life. Similarly a Feminine-based, energy-style meditation will not only lead you to new experiences and states of energy and energetic manifestation. It will also lead you to higher states of consciousness.

 

Thus, any practice will ultimately lead you to the whole, because all is truly whole and in union. It is simply a matter of whether that practice leads you there more directly or more indirectly. It is also a matter of whether that practice is easy and more accessible for you. My suggestion is to choose the practice that is most natural and accessible to you, based on your own abilities, qualities, and strengths. It is also important to be aware of the intended outcome of a particular practice. Choose a certain practice based on whether it focuses on the outcome you are seeking. If you are able to connect with your higher self and your own guidance, this is the best form of directing you to the practice that is right for you. If you are not able to connect with your higher self or guidance, use your body, feelings, and intuition to guide you to the practice that is most attractive to you and to which you are drawn. Then observe the results and see if those are the results that you value and desire. If not, adjust your practice or seek a different one.

 

As always, you can pray and ask God to guide you to the practice that is best for you. I recommend prayer often in my messages and I do so intentionally, because so many of you forget that you can always ask for help and it will be given. My hope is to offer this reminder as a loving support, guiding you to the loving help that God always provides.

 

I hope this has been helpful in finding the form of meditation that is most supportive for you. Meditation is an important practice, which I highly recommend as a valuable aspect of living a spiritually-based life and experiencing the fruits of the higher dimensions and higher consciousness. May you all enjoy this. It will transform you and your world.

 

With much love and blessings,

I Am Mary Magdalene

My Passage Into 2014

Photo courtesy of Jessie Eastland

By Mercedes Kirkel
January 1, 2014 

I was anticipating the Christmas holidays being difficult this year because that’s what I experienced at Thanksgiving. As it turned out, I had a lovely Christmas, though markedly different from any other. From what I’ve heard from others, the unusualness of this holiday season seemed to be true for many people.

 

There was one event that particularly stands out for me. I was having a special dinner with my father on Christmas Eve, just the two of us eating alone in his room at his assisted living home. We were having a wonderful time, when one of the residents began to have a medical emergency. While eating her meal in the dining room, a piece of food became lodged in her throat and she couldn’t get it out. She wasn’t choking and was able to breathe and talk, but couldn’t release the food.

 

The woman was brought into the bathroom, which was directly opposite my dad’s open door. Since I was facing the hallway, I was able to see and hear everything that was going on. The attendants tried the Heimlich maneuver several times but to no avail. So the paramedics were called and in marched seven firemen. My dad was completely oblivious to the whole brouhaha, because his back was to the door and his hearing is quite limited. Since the woman didn’t appear to be in any danger, I decided not to tell him what was happening. I guessed it would disturb him and I wanted him to continue to enjoy our special time together.

 

As for me, I felt like I was in a surreal scene, which reminded me of a Fellini movie. I was simultaneously engaged in a calm, joyful dinner with my father and a swirl of medical commotion that was like a scene out of “ER.” The interesting thing was that I had no problem being fully present for both realities simultaneously.

 

Reflecting back now, I see this as a mirror of what’s happening for many of us at this time. We find ourselves walking between worlds, holding more than one reality or “timeline” at the same time as we transition into our next phase of higher consciousness. What struck me about the Christmas Eve event was how easeful it was for me to embrace both at the same time and how comfortable I was simply allowing my experience to unfold however it would. It reminds me of Mary Magdalene’s advice in Mary Magdalene Beckons to surrender to the process of transformation like women have learned to do through the natural childbirth movement. And I do believe we are all in the midst of a birth—of ourselves and our world—into the new age ahead.

 

After dinner that night, my dad and I watched “It’s a Wonderful Life” together. My dad can’t really follow a plot in a movie any longer, so I explained to him what was happening in every scene. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, but I sensed my father was sticking with it for my sake. At the end he announced, “That was a very impractical movie!” I laughed, knowing that he meant “unrealistic.” I explained my point of view, how it’s an allegory, but perhaps more true than we realize. He relaxed hearing what I had to say, probably mostly because he was happy the movie was over and we were together.

 

Then my dad did something that felt so endearingly tender and vulnerable—he asked me to tuck him into bed. I remembered all the times as a child he had tucked me into bed. This was the first time he’d ever asked to receive this beautiful ritual from me. Tucking him into bed was really the peak of my Christmas, the most beautiful present I received. I was brimming over with bliss to be able to express our shared love through that simple act.

 

Right after Christmas I became sick for the second time in the past month. I was surprised and annoyed, feeling unwilling to surrender my plans for the remainder of the holidays to sickness again. Nonetheless, as the sickness took hold I became increasingly dysfunctional with each passing day. By New Year’s Eve, I’d finally let go of all attempts to be productive (which is really tough for me!). Other than a wonderful “Global Group Hug” I participated in through meditation, I spent the day surfing the computer and lying on the couch watching delightful old movies. To my surprise, by nighttime, I actually felt a lot better.

 

I went to bed with a deeply felt prayer that I may turn everything over to God (including my somewhat compulsive drive for doing my work), allow God to direct my life for the highest good, and profoundly trust that process. I woke up on New Year’s morning feeling like a new version of me—filled with energy and excitement for my projects ahead. Yippeeeeee!!!!! I love that feeling.

 

I was reminded of Jimmy Stewart’s character in “It’s a Wonderful Life,” suddenly getting his life back and realizing how great it was. The death-rebirth symbolism was hard to miss, as well as the personal lesson that it’s all about surrender to and trust in God, rather than trying to push the river with my ego. Not an easy one for me, as I’m such a dedicated doer. But maybe I’m finally ready to accept this level of letting go into God as the basis of my life. I deeply hope so.

 

I ask for everyone’s blessings who is reading this, that this “turning of the wheel” into 2014 may mark my transition into living profoundly in surrender, trust, and faith in God. And I send my blessings to all of you – all who are reading this, all my friends and family, and all members of the family of humanity – that we may all receive the gifts we most need as completely as possible; that we may move fully into our next level of embodying our human-divinity; and that our world may become an increasingly blessed and beautiful realm of human consciousness and love for all, by all.

 

So be it!

MARY MAGDALENE: Knowing Your Soul Path and Soul Agreements

Part 3 of a Message
Received by Mercedes Kirkel

On November 7, 2013 

Question: Do we each have an individual path that we have already decided upon before our birth or are things changing as time moves on? For instance, maybe God planned to use us (those of us who pray to surrender our lives) in one way, but with the way things have gone, could better use us in an entirely different way? What is the best way to serve God and the highest good of all involved?

 

Mary Magdalene: Thank you for your question. This has to do with the process of what beings decide before taking on an incarnation and how that affects them in their incarnation. It is true that before a being incarnates on the third dimension—on Earth, as the example we’re talking about right now—that individual makes very specific agreements relative to what they want to experience in their lifetime and how they want to serve. They decide how they want to make use of their spiritual gifts and their spiritual energy, for the greater good of many. This is what you might call living your life purpose. It is a combination of both furthering your own personal soul growth through your incarnation, and also bringing energy and manifesting for the greater good of many beings while you are incarnate.

 

In general, souls do make soul agreements before they incarnate. The major events of your life are chosen at that time, prior to your birth. However, within that there is a great deal of space for your free choice during your lifetime and your incarnation as to the more day-to-day aspects of what you will be choosing in your life. You also have choice, to a certain extent, as to the ways you will be fulfilling the agreements you made. So it is a combination. There is free choice after you incarnate, and it is also true that you have exercised your free choice as a soul prior to incarnating. Some of what you are experiencing in your Earth life is the continuation and the fulfillment of those choices at this level.

 

However, one of the challenges in the Earth plane is that you do not remember this process. You do not remember the soul choices you made. For many, it is a confusing process to have clarity about what your soul path is and to feel confident that you are on your soul path.

 

There are two things I would suggest that are most helpful in knowing and being clear about your soul path, and being confident that you are following your soul path. One is to be very connected to your heart and to allow your heart to guide you. This is something that I have spoken about before. I talked about this in depth in the book that I gave through Mercedes, Mary Magdalene Beckons. That book contains many messages from me about how to be in your heart. This is very important for many people at this time.

 

What many people don’t understand is that it is not simply about desiring or intending to be in your heart. That must be supported by your very real relationship with your body, your sexuality, and your emotions. Your degree of development and mastery in these three areas will greatly influence your ability to be in your heart or not. So I have urged many times that people focus on and become strong in these three arenas, handling anything that you need to handle that is not full and strong in these areas.

 

The one that is most challenging for people, in general, is the emotional arena and the way that people respond to emotional pain. I have given great instruction through Mercedes and through the book that she created out of my instruction, which is available to people to help you in that area. I again urge people to make use of this to help you to stay in your heart, which will inform you as to what your true soul path is. It’s confusing if you are coming from your mind. Your mind is important and your mind supports you in many ways. But your mind is not capable of having the kind of clarity at the soul level that your heart does. This is why being strong in your heart will be a great support.

 

The other reason that being strong in your heart is a great support is because it allows you to open to your higher self. Your higher self has access to your soul wisdom and your soul path. So once you are strong and able to be stably seated in your heart, you will be able to make this connection with your higher self. And your higher self can help to give you the information you need as to what your soul wants you to be doing.

 

It is not so much that there is another, separate being, who you might refer to as “God,” who has plans for you as to what you should be doing for your soul work or soul purpose in this lifetime. It is your higher self that will be guiding you. Your higher self is an aspect of God manifesting individually for you. You will understand over time that God is not a separate being somewhere else who is directing the play of events here on Earth. Everything that is here, everything that is manifested is an aspect of God. You are an aspect of God. All is an aspect of God. Your higher self is the part of you that remembers this most clearly. Your higher self can help you to remember your God-self and know your path as your God-self. As you grow spiritually, this will all become much clearer. But for most beings at the third-dimension, this tends to be a confusing area.

 

Opening to your higher self will help you to have the clarity you need. This is a very important part of the transformation that all beings are in the process of right now. Opening to your higher self will help you to move into the next stage of spiritual growth that humanity as a whole is prepared to move into and is in the process of going into at this time. In whatever way you are able to connect with your higher self, that will help you.

 

For most people, this will involve a progression that requires that you first have the ability to open your heart and to live from your heart. Within that step, there is a progression of doing things that allow you to be in your heart—mastering the areas of your body, your sexuality, and your emotions so that your heart can open and you can become stable in living from your heart. On that basis, you will find an ease in opening to your higher self. And your higher self will begin to guide you.

 

This is the most personal form of your guidance in God. It does not come from a separate God who is in charge. Your higher self is God, and this is the aspect of God that is most directly accessible to you.

 

I offer you my fullest blessings and love, and support you in your process. I urge you to strengthen whatever needs strengthening. And of course, I am not just speaking to you. I am speaking to all beings in saying this, that all may become full in living in their heart and connecting with their higher self, which will give you the wonderful gift of understanding what is right for you in each moment of living your path in God.

 

Blessings to you my dear one.

A Lesson In Compassion

By Mercedes Kirkel

The last blog post, “Why Evil People Flourish While Good People Suffer,” generated more controversy than anything else I’ve posted to date! Most of the controversy involved people’s wide-ranging beliefs relative to evil and good, including what evil and good really are and whether they exist at all. I found the great diversity of responses quite interesting. Reading them gave me an important insight as to why I was so moved by Mary Magdalene’s message.

 

I strongly recommend reading that post if you haven’t already. In short, it’s Mary Magdalene’s response to a question that was posed to her, asking why evil people flourish while good people suffer. The question was submitted to me in advance, so I could ask it of Mary on behalf of everyone. When I received the question, I imagined how Mary might respond. In Mary Magdalene Beckons: Join the River of Love, Mary states that beings in the higher dimensions do not see things in terms of good-bad, right-wrong, good-evil, etc. So I anticipated that Mary would respond in a similar vein, perhaps also addressing the pain that might stimulate someone to see the world in that way.

 

Whenever I pre-guess how Mary is going to respond, I’m almost always wrong. It’s one of the things that consistently affirms to me that it’s Mary speaking and not me. This time was no different.

 

In this particular instance, when I asked the question of Mary, the feeling-sense I had was of tremendous compassion. I felt Mary tuning into the state of the questioner with great love, while thanking the person for asking that question and acknowledging the distress it was causing for that individual. Then I felt her reaching—stretching to bridge her reality to the experiences of the person asking the question. But it was done through feeling, not ideas. Her words were simply ways to support the sharing of her heart-experience with that being.

 

It was clear to me that Mary was feeling the person. She was experiencing a person in pain and deeply considering how she could help them. It reminds me of what I used to teach in parenting classes: When a young child hurts themself, attend to their physical and emotional pain in the moment. Hold them. Help them breathe and calm down. Help them through their pain. Don’t lecture them. They won’t hear it in that moment anyway. They’re in too much pain to receive any instruction about what they “should have done” or “shouldn’t have done.” Save the education for later, when you’re both calm, balanced, and open.

 

By contrast, my impulse was to educate. I was coming from my mind and assuming a position of subtle superiority—that my views were more correct. In noticing how Mary responded and how it was different from what I was expecting, I saw that she was coming from her heart. It didn’t stop her from communicating ideas, but I could tell that was secondary. And her heart informed her which ideas would be most helpful to this particular person, in this particular situation. While it was obvious from the responses I received to her message that her answer touched and helped many people, it wasn’t the same kind of universal message I’ve received from her at other times, when she was in more of a pure teaching mode. This was for one person, who was in pain.

 

I was reminded of this again at the end of her communication, when she sincerely expressed that she hoped what she communicated had helped and said that her heart went out to that person. I so strongly felt her caring and love, as well as her genuine respect for an individual wanting to understand and grow.

 

I think that sometimes, in our enthusiasm for what we ourselves have learned, our excitement to share it with others, and our hope to contribute through doing that, we may lose some of our caring and respect for another person who’s in pain. We become more connected to the concepts than to the person. Mary taught me a huge lesson about this through her response to this questioner. I hope next time someone asks me a question, I will respond from my heart first, allowing my mind to support that response but not to overpower it.

MARY MAGDALENE: How Enlightenment Relates To Ascension

Part 5 of a Message
Received by Mercedes Kirkel
On October 3, 2013

Question: “What does a being who reaches enlightenment do after they pass away from this earth? What is their experience then?

 

Mary Magdalene: I thank you for this question. I think many people have wondered what enlightenment is and what happens to people once they reach the state of enlightenment.

 

From my point of view, enlightenment is perhaps slightly misleading as a term. I think it may give people the idea that enlightenment is one thing, one state, or one transition that happens for people. It suggests that you have either gone through that transition or you have not.

 

I see it somewhat differently. I believe what most people in the third dimension are referencing when they talk about enlightenment is the process beings go through in stabilizing at a higher consciousness and realizing, to varying extents, higher dimensions. I don’t see this as just one thing. I see this as a progression, or you might say a continuum, where people are growing and continuously moving forward in their expansion into higher states of consciousness. With that, they are growing and moving in their ability to experience higher dimensions. Over time, they don’t just experience those higher dimensions, but eventually stabilize at a particular dimension. Then that higher dimension becomes the primary dimension they are living from. It’s what you might call their new base or reality.

 

What this suggests, from my point of view, is a process, rather than one specific event or moment. In referring to enlightenment, people may be referring to different steps along the way of this process. They might be referring to people who are at varying states of higher consciousness and realizing higher dimensions of being.

 

I sometimes refer to these higher states as the fourth dimension, fifth dimension, sixth dimension… There are different qualities to each of these dimensions. What people identify as someone being enlightened references the experiences people have at those different dimensions. This was described in much greater detail in the book, Mary Magdalene Beckons. I don’t want to repeat that now. But that is another place where you can find more information about what people experience in different dimensions.

 

Relative to what happens after death, it depends on what the person’s consciousness is. In general, from the third dimension people go into an after-death state that is in the fourth dimension. But if people are at a higher level of consciousness, it is possible that they would go into a state that is beyond the fourth dimension after death.

 

It is good to be aware that you can’t always judge (Mary laughs) your own consciousness, let alone someone else’s consciousness. It may be that people are actually operating at higher levels than you may guess by the life experiences they’re having, or even by the choices they’re making, the actions that they’re taking, or the kind of thoughts they’re thinking. It is not as simplistic as sometimes people in the third dimension tend to imagine. There can be reasons why someone would come to the third dimension to have specific experiences, which you might think of as lower experiences. And yet, they may be a very evolved being. They may be very far along their path and simply need these experiences for something very specific for their growth.

 

Sometimes people come into this world to support processes that are larger than themselves. To do that, they may have taken on certain agreements to do certain things or to make certain things possible. Some of those things may appear negative, from your point of view. But from a larger understanding, it may support a movement forward for specific individuals, or even perhaps for very large groups of individuals.

 

I urge you to be cautious, to be really aware, and to bring your highest perspective and wisdom to thinking that “This person is enlightened,” or “This person isn’t,” or “This person is on their path,” or “This person isn’t”… Or your thoughts may be very personal: “I’m on my path” or “I’m not” or “I’m doing well,” or “I’m not doing well,” or whatever. Having those kinds of thoughts can be an impediment to you being on your path.

 

Ultimately everyone’s path is about uniting with God, bringing light and love, and fulfilling your soul purpose. At some level, you all know what your soul purpose is. Generally that knowing is not at the same level as your thinking mind. Sometimes your thinking mind can be an impediment to your fullest connection with your soul purpose.

 

I hope that that has answered your question. I think it is a very valuable question, for you and hopefully for many people. So thank you very much.

 

I sense that we are coming to a closure for our time together for now. I thank you all. I thank you for doing the work that you’re doing, for being the beacons of light that you are, for bringing the love that you bring into the world. It is all so important. I bless you. I bring my light and love to you. And I am honored to participate with you in this way.

 

With that, I close for now. I AM Mary Magdalene.

MARY MAGDALENE: What Will Support You Most In Living In Your Heart

Part 3 of a Message
Received by Mercedes Kirkel

On October 3, 2013

 

Question: Which chakras or areas do people need to work on right now for their full illumination? What do you recommend to remove these blockages?

 

Mary Magdalene: Thank you for asking this question. I want to begin by saying that, obviously, it is unique for each person what their individual challenges or blockages are, what they need to work on, and what would be the best avenue for them for doing that work.

 

Nevertheless, there are patterns right now in your world and your culture, as far as what blockages people are experiencing, in general, relative to their chakras or to different areas of their lives, and what they can do about these blockages. I focused on this a lot in the first series of messages I gave to Mercedes, which are contained in the book, Mary Magdalene Beckons. I urge people to make use of that book for a very full and deep discussion of just this thing—the blockages that are presenting themselves and the specific actions people can take to move beyond these. But I will briefly reference what those are in a summary way right now.

 

The number one blockage that most people are experiencing, and which I believe is holding most people back in their spiritual growth more than anything else, is their blockage relative to emotions. Specifically this occurs when people are dealing with painful emotions. This is related to the second chakra, which is the chakra where most people have the most challenge. This is also the chakra of sexuality and relationships, and these are areas that many people are challenged in, as well.

 

The wonderful thing is that your challenge is also your opportunity. Your emotions, sexuality, and relationships are your greatest opportunities for spiritual growth at this time. This is related to what’s specifically being called for at this time for most people, which is to strengthen your inner Divine Feminine. Most people are underdeveloped in their inner Divine Feminine. It is an area that has been held back and actually withheld—culturally, educationally, and in many, many ways—for a very long time in your world. Most of you have developed your Masculine side rather exclusively, so now you are overdeveloped in your Masculine side and underdeveloped in your Feminine side. This is true for women and men. Everyone, regardless of your gender, needs to be strong in both.

 

At this time there is a great opening for the Divine Feminine. There is also great need for the Divine Feminine. It is required that the Divine Feminine become strong so that she can come into balance with the Divine Masculine. This needs to happen within all of you. Really it’s even greater than coming into balance. It’s coming into sacred union, the Divine Feminine and Masculine coming together in wholeness and oneness. It is a great, great beauty when you experience that.

 

I was most blessed to have that experience with my beloved Yeshua. It is not different from the experience that all of you will have, even within yourself, when you experience this union. It is a most wonderful thing. It is what you are all being called to, and in fact, what is required for you to make the transition into the new age before you.

 

Many of you are doing wonderful work in this area. But there is a great deal to be done. When this strengthening of the Divine Feminine is strong and full, it will allow you to live in your heart, as an ongoing, continual experience. I know that so many of you long for this, and it is underway. The thing that will support you the most in this is developing strength in your relationship to your emotions, and especially your painful emotions. That is the number one area that will help you more than anything else.

 

As I said earlier, I have explained how to do this in detail in my instructions in Mary Magdalene Beckons. It’s really quite a simple path. But for many, it will not be easy, because you are so trained in other ways that have excluded this. The basics are given in that book and I encourage all of you to make use of it. Transforming the way you respond to and make use of painful emotions will help you and your world more than anything else.

 

Thank you for your question. I send you my love and blessings.

MARY MAGDALENE: Helping Our Children

Part 3 of a Message
Received by Mercedes Kirkel
On September 5, 2013 

Question: What more can we do to help the Divine Feminine and also to help our children?

 

Mary Magdalene: Blessings to you. I feel you so strongly in my heart. I shine my light upon you. Thank you so much for your love, your caring, your dedication to your spiritual path.

 

Your inner work is always where it begins. Look first to yourself and what you can do to strengthen yourself within. Make use of the book [Mary Magdalene Beckons: Join the River of Love] and the instruction I have already given through Mercedes. This is an excellent starting place for looking at how you can strengthen that Divine Feminine within yourself, so that you become a beacon of light for the Divine Feminine. This will affect your children more than anything else and absolutely will affect your world, as well.

 

There’s so much that I could say about this. I love your question about the children. I have such caring and passion for children. What the children need more than anything else is your example of loving your body, of loving their bodies, of showing them that they are a perfect manifestation of God. This is true even with any challenges that they have, any lessons that they have come to learn and to grow. This does not in any way diminish their absolute perfection as a divine being. Know this about yourself and know this about your children. Affirm this to them.

 

Show children their perfection in terms of their beautiful bodies. Show them how to care for their bodies as temples of God—how to eat healthy food, how to enjoy their bodies, how to take care of their bodies. Along with this, show them how to care for other aspects of the physical—how to care for their environment, how to care for their pets and their animals, how to care for the Earth. All of these things are so important.

 

As it is appropriate, as they grow, show children another path with their sexuality. Show them how sexuality is a divine energy from God, to be understood, to be honored, and to be engaged with responsibility as a gift from the divine. When they are ready, when they are older, give them access to higher wisdom about their sexuality, how it can be engaged in a sacred way. In general, this would be appropriate for the teenage years, to start to bring this wisdom to young people as they transition into becoming young adults and start to experience their sexuality awakening. Help them understand that this is a sacred energy and how it can be used for opening their heart, for having amazing interactions with another being that are based in love and honoring of the divine in both partners, and that can grow them spiritually.

 

For many of you, this will perhaps require you to become more educated relative to the sacred in sexuality. This is a most wonderful arena that I urge everyone to become educated in, if you are involved in sexuality in your own life. Truly, everyone is involved in sexuality, for everyone has sexual energy. Whether you are expressing your sexuality with a partner or not, this is something that you can learn to make use of for your wholeness, for your wellbeing, for the flowering of your union of your Feminine and Masculine within, and for your greater opening spiritually. This is instruction that I am in the process of bringing in with Mercedes for a second book, which will be especially focusing on this arena of Sacred Sexuality.

 

The other arena that is so important for all of you to learn for yourselves, as well as for helping children, is relative to emotions. If you are involved with children, educating yourself relative to emotions is a tremendous gift you give to children. In particular, help children to understand the beautiful gift and opportunity available to them when they experience pain. This is actually much easier with children than adults, the younger they are. This is because they are less inculcated in the path of suppressing their emotions or projecting their emotions outward onto other forms to avoid feeling them and dealing with them themselves.

 

As you engage this transformational work for yourself, it will naturally reach more and more people. It simply expands out in greater and greater circles into your world. Know that your world is always a reflection of your own reality. As you change yourself, your world will absolutely be changing.

 

The final thing that I would always recommend is prayer. Prayer is so powerful, for you and for others. Yet it is so easy to forget in the third dimension, where things seem so physically based. But prayer is your great help. Do not hesitate to bring in prayer for anything that you see that needs strengthening or help in any way.

 

I hope that this is helpful to you, and I thank you again for your question.

Communicating With Mary Magdalene

By Mercedes Kirkel

Question: I’ve been working with Mary Magdalene for about four months now. I’d like to understand what I’m to do with the energy transmissions I’m getting from her. Is there any instruction you can give to people who are just getting started with receiving messages from her?

 

Mercedes: It depends on the form of the transmissions you’re receiving. For example, if you’re doing healing work and you’re feeling her presence really strongly, I would say she’s working with you and coming through in that healing. She’s showing you what she wants you to do and how she’s working with you.

 

If the transmissions are coming through in a more verbal form, where she’s giving you messages that you’re hearing or that you’re telepathically receiving—meaning it’s coming directly to your brain and it’s a message that you’re already knowing without necessarily hearing it in an auditory way—then I would encourage you to dialog with her and ask her how she wants you to use the messages. Certainly I would encourage you to record the messages in some way, whether you write them down, or speak them into a recorder, or whatever form you use. I think that would be really valuable.

 

If you’re connected to your higher self, that’s another resource for you. Ask your higher self, “What am I meant to do with these transmissions?”

 

Mary Magdalene is coming through to many, many people right now. If you are experiencing her, I encourage you to really open yourself to receive her. In my own case, when she started coming through, I had a lot of doubt come up. She worked with me relative to my doubt. I had doubt that this could be real or that Mary Magdalene would ever choose me to communicate with or to connect to. She worked with me to help me go beyond my doubt. Ultimately I saw that by doubting myself, I was doubting God. Resistance can manifest in so many different ways. For me, it manifested as self-doubt. But doubting that God could be speaking through me is ultimately doubting God—doubting one of the forms of God.

 

I had this wonderful experience with my father around what was occurring, also. He was doubting that Mary Magdalene was talking to me. Really he just didn’t understand what was happening and was trying to makes sense of it. He has a much more rational, or you might say conventional, point of view than a lot of us do and he was really struggling to come to terms with me channeling Mary. Finally he suggested we go talk to a family friend who’s a Catholic priest and ask him what he thought. So we did.

 

We engaged in a conversation with the priest, but my father still wasn’t feeling like he was getting the answer he was looking for. At one point, he finally asked very directly, “But Father, who is this who is talking to my daughter?” The priest looked him in the eye and said, “Hugh, God has always chosen certain individuals to speak through. Why shouldn’t he choose your daughter?” That was such a powerful moment, for me and my father. It showed me how doubting myself was doubting God. That was part of my journey.

 

Your journey may not be the same. You may not have that same challenge that I had. But whatever it is within you that might be questioning what’s happening or unsure, that’s probably part of your process. It’s part of what’s being worked on and transformed by opening to a new being who you have identified as Mary.

 

I hope that’s helpful to you. Blessings to you.

MARY MAGDALENE: What Is Most Critical At This Time

Mary Magdalene Beckons

Part 1 of a Message
Received by Mercedes Kirkel
On September 5, 2013 

Hello everyone,

 

This is Mary Magdalene. Thank you to all of you who are listening and all of you who will be receiving this message in the future. I am so very happy to connect with all of you.

 

I wish to say a little bit about myself at this point. Some of you may already know this and some of you may be less familiar with what I’m about to share. I feel like it’s important to begin from this base of understanding about me and what I am bringing through at this time.

 

Many of you are familiar with me as a person who was recorded in the Bible as one of the followers of Jesus. My preferred way to refer to Jesus is through the name Yeshua, which is his Aramaic name. Aramaic was the language we were speaking at the time of his and my incarnation, two thousand years ago. So I will be referring to him as Yeshua, but this is the same one that many of you know as Jesus.

 

My relationship with Yeshua was a very sacred relationship. Everyone who was touched by him, who was involved with him in any way, had a sacred relationship with him. I had the great, great blessing and tremendous gift to be very close to him, in fact to be in sacred relationship with him. This is something I have explained in detail in the book Mary Magdalene Beckons: Join the River of Love. This is something that was not recorded in the Bible, for various reasons. The Bible was recorded long after our lifetimes. Those who decided what would and what would not be included in the Bible had their own decisions they were making and their own purposes. As part of that, it was decided that my story would largely not be included, except in very skeletal form.

 

But in fact, it is the case that I was Yeshua’s partner and we were in sacred relationship together. The reason for this is quite deep, quite complex. One aspect of it is that we both had work—very, very profound and important spiritual work—that we were bringing forth. It was understood that my part of this was to bring forth what I refer to as the Divine Feminine, or the Feminine face of God. I was incarnated with Yeshua as an example and a modeling of the union of Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine, in the form of a human man and woman.

 

But we also understood—Yeshua and myself, and others as well—that the world at that time was not ready for this aspect of our work and the teaching that we were bringing forth—the aspect of the Divine Feminine, the aspect of sacred relationship, the aspect of God having attributes or aspects that were both Masculine and Feminine. (Another way of saying this is Father-Mother-God.) At that time, two thousand years ago, the world was not prepared for this. We understood this. Even back when we were both physically incarnated, we knew that it would be two thousand years before the world was ready. That time has come. This is the time now. Not only is the world ready to receive the divine in Feminine form, and to receive my teaching of the Divine Feminine, but the world needs this. Receiving the Divine Feminine is very crucial to your time period right now.

 

There are many who are aware of this. I am not the first to say this and this occasion is certainly not the first time of this being stated. Many, many people who are aware, who are conscious, and many people who are tuned into higher beings are quite cognizant of this, that this is the time of the Divine Feminine coming through and coming forth, and that this is absolutely necessary right now.

 

This is one of the reasons why I have been coming through to Mercedes, as well as to other people. Part of my work is to be a leader in the transformation that humans are in the process of undergoing. This is a transformation from having the Divine Masculine as the predominant message you received and incarnated for a very long time. That message has predominated both in terms of your spirituality and also in terms of your more mundane world and aspects of that world—your politics, culture, education, and personal development. All of these have been quite dominated by the Masculine, what you could call the Divine Masculine. Now it is time for the Divine Feminine to come forth, to be incarnated, to be understood, and for all of you—men and women alike—to become strong in the Feminine, so that you can come into balance between the Masculine and the Feminine.

 

First and foremost, this must happen within yourselves. You all have your own inner Feminine and Masculine, which is a reflection or manifestation of the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine. For all of you, this is where the work originates, within yourselves. For many of you, this will require strengthening the Feminine, because this has not been supported and developed for a very, very long time. Even those of you who feel great love of the Feminine and the Divine Feminine, who feel very positively oriented toward the Feminine, even you often have work within yourselves to do to strengthen your inner Feminine. This is very practical work. There are very practical arenas that need to be developed for this to become strong, because it has been withheld from you, in so many ways, for so very long.

 

As I talked about in the messages that are recorded in the book Mary Magdalene Beckons, there are three primary arenas where the Feminine needs to be strong. It is within these three arenas that many people need to examine themselves and see what work they may have to do to complete the strengthening of the Feminine within. This is so important for people to do at this time. First and foremost, this is work for you to do with yourself, for your own strengthening and balancing. Secondly, this work needs to be done for your sacred relationships you will be engaging in your life, that these can come into balance. The third very important reason is that you are not only doing this work for yourself. You do this as service to humanity, for your whole world. As you transform, as you strengthen and develop and grow yourself, you are affecting what is accessible for people, what is available to people, and what is becoming strong for your whole world. Any time you do growth and transformation work for yourself, it affects everyone. That is very, very important at this time.

 

You are all at a very critical juncture, where there is great opportunity opening up for your world, and for human beings, in particular, to transition into a higher level of consciousness. This will be reflected in a higher dimension of reality coming in and being the realm that you all inhabit, that you know, that you live in and are manifesting in. This is the great opportunity you have at this time. Those of you who are on your spiritual path, who are light-workers, very likely those of you who are listening to me at this time, many of you are quite aware of this. I, and so many beings of the higher realms, thank you for all that you are doing to support this amazing transformation that is underway in your world. This is not only affecting the Earth. This transformation is so vast and involves so many places in your universe, all of which you are affecting through the spiritual work you are doing. It is most important. We thank all of you for this.

 

I am aware that I have wandered away a bit from where I started, which was explaining about the Divine Feminine and the arenas through which this manifests within each of you. Now I wish to return to that. What I want to explain is that there are these three arenas that are the foundation of the Divine Feminine within each one of you: the relationship with your physical body, the relationship with your sexuality, and the relationship with your emotions. For each of you, these are the places that I strongly urge you to examine and see what may need strengthening within yourself. This is what I talked about in great depth in the messages I gave in the book Mary Magdalene Beckons, along with my guidance and instruction as to what each of you can do to strengthen these areas. As I said at that time, of these three, the area that is most critical for the most people is the way that you respond to pain.

 

The area of emotions, for many people, is quite confusing. Your emotions are truly a gift from the divine that is rather unique to human beings in your realm. Yet many of you do not yet fully understand how to receive this gift that has been given to you in the emotional realm and how to work with emotions, particularly your painful emotions. This is the part that is most challenging for many of you. You did not receive help and support and guidance in understanding the pathway of how to respond to painful emotions, how to receive the gift from God that’s being given to you through these emotions, and how to make use of emotions to support your spiritual journey, to support your uniting with God.

 

Because you did not receive that instruction and that guidance, and because you do not fully understand it, I especially focused on that in my earlier messages that are recorded in Mary Magdalene Beckons. I gave detailed instruction about how you can respond differently to your painful emotions in a way that will be most supportive of you, most supportive of your spiritual connection, and most supportive of your forward movement in your spiritual evolution. I did this because, from my vantage point, this is the area that is holding most people back from their spiritual growth in general, and specifically from the incarnation of the Divine Feminine.

 

This is why I said earlier that while many of you are so positively oriented to the Divine Feminine and the Feminine in all her forms (which is a most wonderful thing), even so, for many of you there may still be work to do in these three arenas, and especially in the emotional arena in terms of how you respond to pain. I urge you to make use of the instruction I have given and to learn these pathways of incarnating the Divine Feminine, which will support you and help to transform you, and in that process, transform your world.
